Overcome Darkness with these Fantasy Reads!

October is one of my favorite times of the year and Halloween is definitely one of my favorite holidays! I love the lighthearted spirit, the stories, the colors, and of course the lights: candles flickering in jack-o-lanterns to will-o-wisps hiding in the forest. I love the history of the holiday too, especially Samhain, the Gaelic celebration! Must by my Irish roots. πŸ˜‰

So, of course, when I heard there was a special giveaway running dedicated to Diwali, which is the Hindu festival of lights, that celebrates mythic fiction and stories where light overcomes darkness (also known as noblebright as opposed to grimdark fiction) I signed up!

Light overcoming darkness lies at the heart of all of my stories, even the dystopian. I can’t find it in me to let the light die. And though I love history, I never considered my epic fantasy series mythic fiction until this promo. But the ancient Greek stories of naiads, dryads, and gods controlling elements are certainly what helped inspire the magic in the novels. Guess I found a new keyword to add to my categories on Amazon!

So if you love stories where good somehow conquers the dark, check out this special list and pick up a few new books to help you through the darkness. It is a long haul until December 21st and winter solstice!
